Call For Papers

International Conference on 18th-century Architecture & Culture
"Books with a View". Celebrating the birth of the portuguese architect and city planner Eugénio dos Santos (1711-1760)

Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian
Institut Français du Portugal
Lisbon, Portugal
November 23rd-25th, 2011

The year of 2011 celebrates three hundred years since the birth of Eugénio dos Santos (b. 18.03.1711-25.08.1760), the Portuguese architect and city planner who, among other projects, was responsible for the plans to rebuild Lisbon after the earthquake of November 1, 1755. His artistic and technical training, his architectonic production, his aesthetic preferences and some of the books in his private library (comprising 160 titles), reflect a person that embodied the transition between two significant moments in Portuguese culture. Unfortunately, Eugénio dos Santos has not handed down the theoretical support of his architectonic oeuvre. A contextual approach is thus essential to identify the underlying principles sustaining his work. Therefore, to celebrate his birth, we welcome contributions to cultural representation(s) that, directly or indirectly, would add to the eighteenth-century’s artistic practice and theory focusing on the following thematic itinerary:

1 The logic of time;
2 Writings on Architecture and city planning;
3 Private and royal libraries (patronage, space concepts, architectural decoration, furniture, catalogues...);
4 Recommended books and forbidden books;
5 Printed books: arts and techniques (typography, page layout, engravings, bindings, and materials).
